Hi Joe..

The first thing to do here is to go through the CLRTC procedure that is described in the 'Jumper' section of your user manual..  While doing that, remove all the memory except for the module in the A2 memory slot.  Then when the CLRTC procedure is complete, plug in and see if the system will boot.

Hi m..

That was quick.. it generally takes about 10 minuites to complete those tasks..

Since you are getting no beeping, that suggests that the processor 'may' not be running.  I assume you have a case speaker or beeper properly attached to the system panel conenctor.

Nest thing to do is remove all the mmeory and start the system.. that will confirm whehter or not the processor is running.  If it is, you will hear beeping.

Hi M..

The next consideration is the power supply.  If there is a problem with the 12vdc power bus that is connected to the EATX12V power supply connector, then the processor won't run.  So although I wouldn't go out and buy a new power supply.. that may not be the issue.. I would swap another in.  If you don't have another adequate supply, maybe a friend has one you could borrow...

yeah i tryed that too.
still the same. :(
im trying to think what could have shorted the cpu at this point.

so what your saying is that if the cpu dosent work all the fans will kick in and you'll get no beeps.

Hi m...

What happens when a system boots is that the processor gets started or initialized... then the BIOS program starts to run.. and initialized hardware..  One of the first things the BIOS does is try to find the memory.. becasue it is going to copy itself into main memory in order to run...  If the BIOS program can not find any memory, it will complain with a POST error beep code.

So when you start your system with no memory and you don't hear anything, that usually indicates that the processor isn't running.  If it was running, then the BIOS would run up to the memory detection stage and then halt with an error beep pattern..

The reasons why a processor won't run are numerous.. but in generall, its the power supply.. or a problem with the installation of the processor.. or something happened when the heatsink was attached.. or the processor is bad... 

There can be issues with shorting in a new system assembly.. but I son't expect you removed the mainboard when you did the processor switch..

Hi m..

Well, if things have been OK for three weeks.. and then all of a sudden the processor quits running, its going to be the power supply.. the board.. or the processor.. in that order.  Of course, if the system has been overclocked, then anything is possible.  I'd contact Dabs and see about getting the board replaced...
